Bollywood’s latest fad: Mini dresses!

Half way into April, the mercury is steadily rising. And while that means dreadful humidity, sultry sweat and unwanted tan for most, Bollywood’s young fashionistas gear up to flaunt the latest summer trends of the season —Mini dresses.
Oh yes, shorter hems are back in vogue in a much more sexy, sassy and edgy avatar.
Here’s a look at how keenly our leading ladies have been following this current fad.
Katrina Kaif: Other than being Bollywood’s most desired, downloaded and searched celebrity; Katrina Kaif is one of the most fashionable A-listers of her league.
Here’s why: whether it’s her cute Jenny-next-door style in 2009’s runaway success, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, crisp cotton sari simplicity in the forthcoming Rajneeti or a super glamorous outing in this snug Herve Leger, Kats gets the best of all worlds.
Killer legs thy name is Priyanka Chopra. It’s only fair for her to flaunt them, like, all the time.
And so whether it’s Dostana, Pyaar Impossible or real life, Lady Chopra unleashes her long-stemmed fury like no one else. We’ve got red-hot proof.
Anushka Sharma: After lying low for a while, the promising new find of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi looks  all set to impress with her upcoming biggies —Badmaash Company opposite Shahid Kapoor and Patiala House with Akshay Kumar.
In the interim, the jovial youngster shows off her off-screen elegance in this classy, glazed mini-dress. Way to go, Taani partner!
Karthik’s calls may have not been answered with an enthusiastic response by the audience.
Even so, you’ve got to admit Deepika Padukone, questionable acting skills aside, is scorching hot in the thriller.
The 24-year-old has a somewhat similar impact on the red carpet as well. And so all that glitters is Deepika in a dazzling Monisha Jaisingh design.
A far cry from her girl punk demeanor in Luck, Shruti Haasan, who recently signed up to play a gypsy in Walt Disney’s Telugu fantasy opposite Siddharth, strikes a perfect lady-like pose in this one-shouldered sequined mini dress.
Like the new look?
When it comes to fashion, Genelia D’Souza is nothing like her tomboyish Aditi, a part she convincingly portrayed in Jaane Tu Yaa Jaane Naa.
Instead there’s something noticeably unpredictable and playful about her style. This bizarre off-shouldered pick is a case in the point.
Ruffles don’t work on everyone.
Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year’s Shahzahn Padamsee, however, looks simply precious in this  ultra chic purple-blue-green Diane von Furstenberg creation.
Her recently-released horror flick, Rokkk turned out to be a blooper.
Thankfully, there’s nothing creepy about Udita Goswami’s lace-themed LBD.
Can’t say the same  about Ms Outrageous, can we?
The raunchy starlet of films like Dil Bole Hadippa and Red Swastik blends a fuchsia figure-hugging mini with black lace to terribly tacky results.
Looks like these hot women have much more than their sensual appeal in common.
Question is who works the mini number best?
